By Ruslan Chikov

According to heavyweight Francesco Pianeta (26-0-1, 14KOs), he will travel to the Austrian village of Going to serve as a sparring partner for WBA/WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko. The Ukrainian beltholder is scheduled to defend his titles in a July 7 rematch with American Tony Thompson. Pianeta is very happy to receive the opportunity to work with Wladimir. Two years ago, Francesco had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor, and last month he defeated veteran and former champion Oliver McCall.

tHIS FIGHT WILL BE AS ONESIDED AS THE FIRST, WLAD COULD USE ME AS HIS SPARRING PARTNER IF HE WANTED.

he is similar in stature & he's a southpaw so this was a great move by wladimir. this will also give pianeta some good experience as a sparring partner.
